Morning Session: The Next Generation of Payments: The Future is Now

There is an urgent need for U.S. Payment Providers to position EMV and Mobile technology as strategic imperatives.

Have any of the following questions been addressed at your credit union?

  • What is EMV?
    • How is it used outside of the U.S.?
    • Why are we talking about it now?
    • What are the liability shift timelines for issuers and merchants?
    •  What are the key benefits (reduced fraud and loyalty/usage uptake)
  • What is our strategy related to EMV?
  • Do we agree it’s important?
  • Do we think the time is right to think about reissue on a mass or rolling basis?
  • How long would it take to be ready?
  • Have we discussed a mobile payments strategy?
  • Are we concerned about losing transactions?

To address these issues, we are pleased to present a Retail Payments Strategy Discussion. The program will feature an overview of EMV and Mobile Technology and how they will affect your short- and long-term retail strategies.

Afternoon Session: Payment Systems Legislation & Regulatory Compliance

Given the current credit regulation tenor and speculation on the possibility of heightened oversight, this workshop will address how to protect your debit and credit card operations from further
legislative intervention.

Specific legislative topics will include:

  • The merchant community’s lobbying efforts to expand interchange regulations;
  • Future restrictions on prepaid products; and,
  • Data security legislation with a specific focus on notification procedures and breach liability requirements.

Prize-Linked Savings Webinar
10:00 am

Please join us for a webinar to discuss Prize-Linked Savings (PLS) opportunities in Connecticut on Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.

To register please contact Susan O’Loughlin at soloughlin@culct.coop.

During the 2013 legislative session, the CT General Assembly passed a bill that allows credit unions to offer savings promotion raffles – savings products that offer prizes in order to incent increased savings activity.  Connecticut is the 8thstate to pass similar legislation, following in the footsteps of Nebraska, Rhode Island, Washington, North Carolina, Maryland, Maine, and Michigan.As financial institutions, you are acutely aware of the importance of savings as part of someone’s financial portfolio.

The webinar will feature Doorways to Dreams Fund, a national non-profit that has been providing technical assistance, advice, and evaluation for PLS products around the country.  In this webinar, we will cover:

  • The basics of PLS
  • Overview of Connecticut law
  • Success/Impact in other states
  • Implementation considerations/how-tos

Please join us for a great conversation. Attending this webinar is not considered to be an indication of commitment to offer the product – the goal of the meeting is to get a shared understanding of the opportunity, discuss options in Connecticut, and see what credit unions would like to explore a prize-linked savings product. Please share this invitation with any relevant staff or other credit union partners.

For more information about savings promotion raffles/prize-linked savings products, the experience in Michigan with Save to Win, and additional new research, please visit
